Where to stay during the London 2012 Olympics
With the London Olympics quickly approaching, time is running out for those who need to sort out their accommodation. Windsor is a great place to stay for anyone who has tickets to the games or is hoping to catch a sneaky glance of some of the events.
Located just 25 miles west of London, Windsor's proximity to many of the major road networks makes it easily accessible. With great railway links to the capital city as well, spectators can be at their destination within 25 minutes.
Aside from being just a quick journey away from all the main action, Windsor is in fact on the doorstep of Eton Dorney Lake which will be playing host to some famous watersports. Lucky residents and visitors will be able to enjoy the rowing, Paralympic rowing and canoe spirit events which will be taking place in this beautiful spot.
As a major tourist hotspot, Windsor certainly isn't short of places to stay - there are hotels, B&Bs and serviced apartments aplenty. On one hand this is fantastic but on the other, it means that making a decision on the type of accommodation you should go for even harder.
If you are looking for something that offers more than a hotel can, then short term lets in Windsor could be the perfect solution. With companies such as Accommodation Windsor specialising in serviced apartments, finding the right one for you is a simple and straight-forward process.
The advantages of short term lets in Windsor are plentiful. Not only can guests enjoy more space, separate living and sleeping areas, their own facilities and the freedom to come and go as they please, it is also much more private than staying in a hotel.
Short term lets in Windsor can be rented out for anything from one week to several months which means that it can work out to be much more cost effective. Serviced apartments can also save a lot of money when there is a group of you because you only need to split one cost as opposed to the cost of several different hotel rooms.
On top of all this, another major benefit of using a company that specialises in short term lets and serviced apartments is that all the hard work is done for you. Simply say where you want to stay and when you are going to be there and everything is there all ready for your arrival.
Windsor is in general a great place to stay and be. If you fancy taking a break from the Olympics or have some time to explore before or after the events, there is plenty to see and do. Whether you like sightseeing, exploring new places, shopping, eating out or enjoying the great outdoors, there really is something for everyone.
